Since then, he has tied with the likes of such tyers as Poul Jorgensen, Herb Howard, Charlie Defeo, and many others. Ralph also tied flies commercially for Walt Dette for a few years. He is the creator of the famous 'Old Glory' salmon fly and presented one to President Carter, an avid fly angler himself. Ralph is a member of both the Catskill Fly Tying Guild and
